What Is Aging Analysis?

Accountants use aging to determine any irregularities in a company’s accounts receivables. To figure out how long an outstanding bill has been unpaid, customer invoices are usually categorized by 30 days.


Step-by-Step Procedure to Do Aging Analysis in Excel

In the following section, we will use one effective and tricky method to do aging analysis in Excel. To create a more understandable aging report, it is necessary to make a basic outline and calculations with formulas, as well as convert the dataset to a pivot table. This section provides extensive details on this method. You should learn and apply all of these to improve your thinking capability and Excel knowledge. We use the Microsoft Office 365 version here, but you can utilize any other version according to your preference.


Step 1: Create Dataset

Here, we have created the dataset of aging analysis.

  • In the following image, we can see the basic dataset of the Aging Analysis report.
  • Here, we have Customer names, Invoice numbers, Date, and Amount in the following dataset.
  • For further calculations, we have inserted the columns Days Sales Outstanding and Status of Invoice.

Create Primary Outline

Now, we are going to create another outline for analyzing the status of the invoice in the Category sheet.

  • You have to create the categories of the invoice according to their day’s sales outstanding to dictate the condition. Here, we have also named the range of the cells as LIMITS.

  • Next, when the New Name dialog box appears, enter the name as LIMITS in the Name box.


Step 2: Use Formulas for Aging Analysis

Now, we will do further calculations for aging analysis. Here we use TODAY and IF functions to calculate the day’s sales outstanding column values. We also use the VLOOKUP function to determine the status of the invoice.

  • To calculate days sales outstanding, we will use the following formula in the cell F5:

=IF(TODAY()>D5,TODAY()-D5,0)

Here, D5 is the date of each invoice, and the TODAY function will return today’s date which is 13-06-22. The IF function will return 0 if the difference between two values is negative, otherwise the Days Sales Outstanding value will be equal to the difference between two positive values.

  • Then, press Enter.

Use Formulas for Aging Analysis

  • Next, drag the Fill handle icon.
  • As a consequence, you will get the following Days Sales Outstanding column.

  • To determine status of invoice, we will use the following formula in the cell F5:

=VLOOKUP(F5,LIMITS,2,TRUE)

By applying the above formula, we will be able to identify the conditions of the invoice by looking up the values of days sales outstanding. Here, F5 is the look-up value which we are going to look up in the LIMITS named range. 2 is the column index number and TRUE is for an approximate match.

  • Then, press Enter.

  • Next, drag the Fill handle icon.
  • As a consequence, you will get the following Status of Invoice column.

  • Then, go to the Insert tab and select Pivot Table.
